The /Joint Research Centre/ in Ispra, Northern Italy, started working on 
*Text Mining *in 1998 and has since developed complex and highly 
multilingual applications seamlessly integrating *Language Technology* 
tools such as clustering, classification, named entity recognition and 
classification (NERC), name variant matching, event scenario template 
filling, multi-document summarisation, sentiment analysis, topic 
detection and tracking, cross-lingual linking of related documents and 
machine translation.

The focus of the JRC's work has always been on *high multilinguality 
*(between ten and fifty languages), on *multilingual and multi- document 
information aggregation *and fusion, as well as on tools to provide 
*cross-lingual information access*. The text analysis tools have been 
integrated with the news gathering engine /Europe Media Monitor/ (EMM). 
The four EMM applications NewsBrief <http://emm.newsbrief.eu/>, 
NewsExplorer <http://emm.newsexplorer.eu/>, Medical Information System 
MedISys <http://medusa.jrc.it/> and EMM-Labs 
<http://emm-labs.jrc.it/>are freely accessible via 
http://emm.jrc.it/overview.html .

Europe Media Monitor 
<http://langtech.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Documents/09_SIGIR-WS_Steinberger+frontmatter.pdf> 
gathers an average of 100,000 news articles per day in fifty languages. 
NewsExplorer 
<http://langtech.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Documents/09_SIGIR-WS_Steinberger+frontmatter.pdf> 
applies text mining tools to *twenty languages*: Arabic, Bulgarian, 
Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Farsi, French, German, Italian, 
Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovene, Spanish, 
Swahili (coming soon), Swedish and Turkish.
